    Uhm, yeah. That`s sad and all, and if it had been done a little better, it would have been fabulous. HOWEVER. What kind of a dumb mean person walks in the middle of the road? And who drives for that long of a straight stretch without seeing someone there? I analyze things too much, but I have trouble looking past this. =__=

    I honestly have to say I did not like it. Although, I think I`m slightly biased because I used to be one of those stupid teenagers who thought the guy I was with was the only one for me and I was so deeply in love. Kid, get over her, she`s gone! There`s gonna be more women.
    I did find the video to be very boring though and the singing in the background was very distracting. I had to get that out, I`m sorry. Hate me if you want...

    blech...call me heartless but i cant take teenage love stories seriously. i thought it was good...and be made entirely by 17 or 15 year olds is amazing too. but the whole age thing just didnt sit right with me for some reason.
    not to mention:
    1)whys he using a freakin typewriter when its obviously set in a 21st century city. it makes it kind of cheesy.
    2) that driver must have been staring at the ceiling the whole time not to notice that girl walking in the middle of the road like that.

    Aw, come on- when you are young it is usually true love. It does change when you are older because usually you have found out the hard way that there is no such thing, but when you are young it really is- and very sweet too- thats what young love is all about.

    He isn`t getting over her because he still loves her when she dies. Had she simply broken up with him he would most likely have been over it by now, but the mix of lost love and death creates this hopeless situation that I think anyone who has experienced one or the other can relate to.

    This made me cry. Brings up a lot of thoughts, and a lot of memories. And yes, I agree, it is more effective when you have someone to lose.

    These comments surprised me though. Things like this actually happen - I would know. It may be cheesy she is hit by a car whilst walking down the middle of the road and died, but would you say it would be cheesy if she had gotten hit by a drunk driver and died? A tragedy is a tragedy no matter how it came into being. Personally I thought the acting was great for the situation. The bit about the typewriter.. I guess that he saw it fit to use something nostalgic to write nostalgic things on? That sort of thing.

    They`re =supposed= to be young. It`s such a shame that so many people believe that teenagers are uncapable of unconditional, true love. Or that people are capable of unconditional love at all. I know it exists.

    But then, of course, being so young, I`ve always been called naive for believing in it.

    By the way, if I had seen this film a few months, even years ago, I would have thought it stupid, too. I would have made `Captain Obvious` comments, too. But that sort of stuff actually happens. I think the moral of the story was to not take people and things for granted.

    Funny. I don`t have anyone to lose, atm. Yet, I was still deeply touched. The part where he talks about feeling like a fish in a bucket was a very precise hit in the proverbial solar plexus. This isn`t the best place to air these thoughts, and I won`t come back here to check for answers should anyone take the time to read this and perhaps give a damn.

    But like I said, this six minute, fifty-four second clip really got to me.

    Thank you, first of all for reading this, and second, if you gave a damn about it.

    Aaaaannnnnnndddddd - yep, everybody under 30 actually thinks this happens. Kids: here`s the truth - she doesn`t die, she jumps in the sack with someone else. She gets married, has kids, lives happily ever after and fcuk you. The only real part is that you never recover. You become some bitter old man posting on internet forums.

    why are so many commenters so damn cynical? this is a great film made by kids who haven`t graduated high school yet. (ages 15-17) what were YOU doing at that age? still jerking off to daddy`s playboys i`m sure. jesus. just enjoy it... or don`t. but you`re definitely not a critic so... stfu or gtfo.
